Stayed at this hotel for 1 night. Great location and quite spacious. A bit old school but convinient. The rooms are big enough though they could do better to provide a better modern TV and more than 3 channels. lighting and ambiance could also be improved. Their food was a bit of a disappointment but since it was a brief...

The room are old fashioned but they are neat and clean. The bath is only a shower and very slippery so you need to be very careful. The staff as friendly as well as helpful. The wifi did not work but they may have had a problem with it.

We stayed at this place for one night. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The food too was good. The hotel itself appeared grand from outside and into the foyer but this is where it all begins to go downhill. The rooms are very very dated and tired looking with very tasteless decor. It was not possible to use the...

First impression - generally the hotel looks good. From the outside to the reception area. It is not very new so there is a bit of wear n tear here and there. Reception - We arrived late in the night at around 10pm. The guy we found at the reception was quite pleasant. Apparently the hotel charges per person rather...

We had a suite with a pantry although we didn't have much use for it. It also had a small balcony. The restaurant, its food and service were good. It is located inside the town which can be either an advantage or a disadvantage depending on your preference.

was here for a lunch with family and I must say the service was great, our food was ready in less than 30 minutes and it came in generous portions. I would go bake there as the prices are very fair, location is easy to find and I have to eat their special "kuku" again! Only downside is the ambience...

Good place for business meetings. Serve good food and staff are courteous. Swimming pool is great and heated, though gets really crowded on weekends. Their rooms are standard. Secure parking space within the hotel and its right in town.

We stayed at the Bontana in July 2014 with 56 in our group. We experienced the fastest and most efficient check-in ever, and found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed a buffet breakfast each morning as well as a buffet dinner each evening that was very hot and tasty. The hotel manager, Chris, and the reception...
